Trust Marlowe, Charlie.
 if you're a Laphroaig lover (second only to Lagavulin), you will appreciate rye. Especially the good stuff, i.e. Black Maple Hill, which i get from K
& L when I am in San Francisco since I can't find it in Southern California. Good Rye is no stop, it's a destination. Whereas Islay scotches have that wonderful smoky peatiness, rye has a wonderful spicy/slight tartness unlike any other whiskey, without sacrificing smoothness, wood, body or burn.
